Just another classmate of Jimmy's checking in. Frontier Class of 1971. Yes, he had a great sense of humor and was so kind to everyone. Missed by many I'm sure. Sympathys from Susan Henning Smith

Went through school with Jimmy. He was so nice to me, and had a funny sense of humor. The world lost an angel. Hugs to his family and friends.

I always liked Jim such a nice man. Always mostly happy, and driving around singing his songs. Had talked to him last year, it was do good to see him. RIP Jim. You will be missed.
